There is SOOOOOOOO much meat on this bone, we could discuss it for years! European Tour pro Brandon Stone had 500 tries to make a hole in one on a par-3 on his favorite course in the world, Sun City in South Africa. This video unearthed by Ryan Ballengee of Golf News Net follows Stone’s quest to cardv a seventh ace in his career.
What follows, of course, is tragi-comedy!
But think about this – could you do it? Or any of your pals? How many people are going to go out there and try this? If it gets people playing golf, I’m all for it.
Interestingly, according to Ryan, “The odds of an average amateur golfer making a hole-in-one are approximately 1 in 12,500 (though the European Tour claims it’s 1 in 100,000), but those odds improve to 1 in 2,500 for a European Tour pro.”
